(WRIC) — The brand Jennie-O is recalling more than 91,000 pounds of ground turkey over fears it could be linked to a salmonella outbreak. 

The recall involves four types of the company’s raw turkey products including “taco seasoned,” “Italian seasoned,” “85 percent lean” and “93 percent lean” ground turkey.

The USDA found that a sample of the products tested positive for a salmonella reading matching the outbreak strain. The samples were from a Sept. 11, 2018 production, and, according to the USDA, the rest of the products shipped nationwide.

Here are the batches that have been possibly linked in the Salmonella outbreak (from USDA.gov):

  • 1-lb. packages of “Jennie-O GROUND TURKEY 93% LEAN | 7% FAT” with “Use by” dates of 10/01/2018 and 10/02/2018.
  • 1-lb. packages of “Jennie-O TACO SEASONED GROUND TURKEY” with a “Use by” date of 10/02/2018.
  • 1-lb. packages of “Jennie-O GROUND TURKEY 85% LEAN | 15% FAT” with a “Use by” date of 10/02/2018.
  • 1-lb. packages of “Jennie-O ITALIAN SEASONED GROUND TURKEY” with a “Use by” date of 10/02/2018.
